GRAYSON COUNTY - The US Aviation flight school plans to grow its operations at North Texas Regional Airport in the next couple years, adding instructors and maintenance staff.

An expanded flight school means more traffic through the airport. Traffic is expected to increase from around 40,000 operations a year to around 100,000, according to Mike Shahan, the airport director.

The increased traffic will bring in more money from the FAA, which is less taxpayer money the county has to spend.

A collaboration of the airport, Grayson County, Denison Development Alliance and Sherman Economic Development Corporation (SEDCO) helped to bring the expansion here.

The last flight school out at the airport shut down unexpectedly in 2010. At the time, it owed tens of thousands of dollars to students and the cities of Sherman and Denison.
